Meet Chris Prentiss


Co-Founder of Passages Addiction Treatment Centers

Chris Prentiss is a best-selling author as well as the co-founder of Passages Malibu and Passages Ventura Addiction Treatment Centers along with his son, Pax. During his teen years, Pax became severely addicted to marijuana, alcohol, cocaine, and finally, heroin. Refusing to accept the doctrine of “once an addict, always an addict,” Chris created a program designed to find out the “why” behind Pax’s addiction using one-on-one therapy and personalized care.

Passages Malibu opened in 2001, with Passages Ventura following in 2009. In addition to running Passages, Chris has also penned numerous celebrated self-help titles, including The I Ching: The Book of Answers, The Alcoholism and Addiction Cure, and Zen and the Art of Happiness.
